After a weekend off thanks to the bye, Bill Belichick’s Patriots get back work on Sunday against a familiar, hated foe.

New England will travel to New York – really to New Jersey – to take on the AFC East-rival Jets.

The Jets are in the midst of yet another tough season, but New England players and coaches alike this week have talked about how these division battles can be true fights to the finish. It may be a 7-3 team vs. a 3-7 squad, but that doesn’t mean the visitors can just pencil in a win for Sunday without the work and preparation to get it.

The New York Daily News stirs the pot a bit this week by declaring that “it’s over” Gronkowski, writing that he’s a shell of his former self and that his days in New England are very much numbered.

NFL.com has the 25 semifinalists for possible induction into the Pro Football Hall of Fame next summer, and the group includes former Patriots Ty Law and Richard Seymour. NFL.com ranks the candidates, with the two Patriots falling outside of the top-5 and even failing to make the top-15. NFL.com’s weekly power rankings put New England at No. 5 coming out of the bye.

CBSSports.com has an early 2019 mock draft that includes the Patriots drafting a quarterback in the first round to be Brady’s heir.

The New York Post declares that this Patriots matchup with the Jets will be just another game.
